‘La tregua’ (Sergio Renán) at 4pm;
‘Metegol‘ (Juan José Campanella) at 6pm;

National Film Day is held in homage to Argentina’s first film ‘La Revolución de Mayo’ (Mario Gallo), which premiered at the Teatro Ateneo on 23rd May 1909. The short film tells the tale of the independence movement launched on 25th May 1810.
